  • The annual Through Your Lens underwater photography contest by Scuba Diving Magazine has given out its awards for this year's competition.
  • The magazine said the images were chosen for their beauty, creativity, and their ability to impact and inspire.
  • The winning entry in this year's contest was an upside-down shot of a whale calf.

A surprising large portion of our planet is underwater, extraordinary and largely unexplored.

As a result, the ocean provides ripe pickings for photography enthusiasts, spoilt by rapidly improving technology.

This year's Through Your Lens photo contest, developed and produced by Scuba Diving magazine, just wrapped up for its 14th year after drawing more than 2100 entries — the full list of winners and honourable mentions are featured in the September/October issue of Scuba Diving and can also be found online here.

The 2019 competition opens on November 1 and is open until May 31, 2019. You can see the full list of categories and official rules here. Scuba Diving said the winning images "were chosen for their beauty and creativity, and further for their ability to impact and inspire".

The prizes were awarded across four categories — wide-angle, conceptual, macro and compact camera. Here's a small selection of the stunning, other-worldly images photographers brought back to the surface.
